75 Lap Race Night at ODS

July 9, 2011

This past week David and the crew went to the track Friday night to practice the car with a new set-up in it. We are constantly looking for ways to make the car faster, the track has open practice sessions every Friday night and it's best to practice the car as close to race conditions as possible. After a few rounds of practice and a few adjustments David and the crew were pretty happy with the new set-up. Qualifying Saturday David went out to practice in the first two rounds and was still happy with the car so we sat out the last round and just spent a little extra time getting our race tires ready for qualifying. The last two races we haven't been qualifying to good and have missed the invert for the start of the races. This week would prove to be a little better, we had a good lap time and the top six were all pretty close and we ended up sixth quickest. We were pleased because we made the invert and that meant we would be starting the race from the third spot. 75 Lap Race On the start of the race David tailed the leader in to turn one and stayed tucked up tight under him for a few laps as he ran side by side with the second place car. After a few laps the leader slipped by and now David was in a battle for second and it just took a lap to complete the pass and now David was in second. After a few cautions the guy that has won the last couple races was behind David. The two of them had a battle for second place for at least 15 laps but David managed to hold his position and now could set his sights on the leader. There was one more caution near the end of the race, it tightened David up on the leader, after the restart David was able to put some pressure on the leader but he couldn't quite get along side of him and he settled back in to second where he ran out the last few laps and ended up finishing second for the second week in a row. We obviously want to get some more wins but we were pleased with the second place finish which allowed David to close the points gap by eight and now trails by just three points.
